The Los Angeles Animation Festival


For 2 days in October, Hollywood gets its first animation festival in over five years – The Los Angeles Animation Festival (Oct.20-21 2007) at the Silent Movie Theatre (611 N. Fairfax Ave., near Melrose Ave., in Los Angeles).

“A festival run by animators for animators.” That’s how festival organizer Miles Flanagan describes his ambitious event.

The weekend will include world premiere screenings (FANTASTIC LALOUX), Gala tributes (Fantastic Planet) and guest speakers including musician Sean Lennon and director Michele Civetta. Every screening is followed by a catered networking party (in the theatre’s Spanish patio). Also of note, my good friends over at Ka-Chew! are co-sponsoring a Rockin Animation music video contest.

For full details, ticket sales and a complete schedule of events/competitions go to the Festival website. See you there!
